Through this agreement, Nucleus customers now have access to Mandiant Advantage Vulnerability Intelligence – real-time, threat insight and analysis powered by Mandiant’s frontline incident responders, intelligence analysts and researchers – at no additional cost.

According to Steve Carter, CEO of Nucleus Security, Mandiant was most aligned with their vision of operationalising vulnerability intelligence and transforming enterprise vulnerability management as we know it.

"We spent the last year performing a deep dive into the vulnerability intelligence offerings of the leading threat intelligence providers and studying how their data could be useful in the context of vulnerability management," Carter said.


By integrating the aggregation, analytics and vulnerability management orchestration capabilities already provided within Nucleus with Mandiant Advantage Vulnerability Intelligence, practitioners can accelerate the vulnerability prioritisation and triage process using automation at scale.

Nucleus combines all the asset information and vulnerability data from scanning tools with threat intelligence information into one single platform, empowering vulnerability teams to eliminate laborious manual data analysis, accelerate decision-making and prioritisation, and remove major pain points as they mature their vulnerability management programs.

Mandiant is committed to arming organisations with the expertise, intelligence and solutions needed to increase security effectiveness and reduce business risk, according to Mike Armistead, senior vice-president, Mandiant Advantage Products.

“Strategic partnerships with companies like Nucleus further our ability to help organisations of all sizes confidently accelerate security and risk decision-making."

"As we change the game in cyber security, we’re pleased to use our unparalleled insight into the threats that matter most to help Nucleus Security customers prioritise vulnerabilities," Armistead said.
